WEDNESDAY, MAY ll.
Private advices received at head
quarteis say that Dewey is in ac

Ben Tillman and Mark lianna
embraced each other in the office
of Secretary Long upon hearing
the news from Dewey.
The United States Supreme
Court in its recent decision "Ma
nilad" Simonton-tore him all to
pieces, blew him up and sunk
him in the soup.
Old England is playing a shrewd
game in the present war that will
come to the surface later-her fin
ger is deep in the war pie, (to be
eaten, of course, after peace comes.)
The capture of a big French
steamer trying to enter Havana
last Saturday may bring on a fit
of French complications of small
moment, but it will amount to a
Thnre are serious riots in Spain
precipitated by the Dewey victory
of the Philippines, but due more
probably to the want of meat and
bread among the working classes
of that country.
The war so effectually holds the
fort that politics is almost nil. We
can only say this, that there are
only two candidates for Governor.
Ellerbe and the other fellow-the
other fellow is Watson.
The intervention of European
powers is all moon-Bhiue-they do
interfere sometimes ostensibly in
favor of the weaker power, but ac
tually and always in favor of the
other fellow, vide Turkey and
The Queen regent of Spain, al
though beset by difficulties and
threatened with violence, will
probably hold the sceptre until the
end come?. Her courage and
equipoise is to be generously com
mended even by Americans.
The war will accomplish great
good for our country industrially
and financially, especially the
South, if it lasts long enough. The
man who can't see this is as dull
as dishwater. Already provisions
have advanced 25 per cent, and

cent a pound.
Of course Dewey deserves all
praise for the victory at Manila
and yet it was like shooting at a
squirrel in a tree. Our guns were
of a longer range than the Span
iards, and they didn't touch our
vessels at all until Dewey saw fit
to allow it by moving up near
The first expedition for Cuba
sailed from Tampa on Sunday
night last. The steamer Gussie
one of the Mallory line, carried
arms, ammunition, and supplies
for the insurgents. A company of
regulars, 100 strong, accompanied
the expedition to aid in landing
the cargo on the coast of Cuba.
Most of the nations of the earth
have declared neutrality in the
war now raging beiween this coun
try and Spain excepting Germany.
This country declares she will be
absolutely neutral except when it
is to her interest to be the other
way, and then she will be tho other
way. We admire her pluck and
honesty. Few nations are abso
lutely neutral, no matter how
strong their official declarations to
that effect may be.
In the South Carolina dispen
sary cases the United States Su
preme Court has decided that the
original package stores must shut
up, that the citizen can buy liquor
for his own use anywhere he
pleases, but not for sale, and that
the State alone can grant the right
to sell liquor within her territory,
aud that the federal courts cannot
enjoin the State from closing up
0. P. houses and blind tigers. This
puts the dispensary law on top and
"soups" Simonton for once. Of
course ... Jo not give the phrase
ology of the court but only the
meaning of the decision stripped
to the skin.

Official and unofficial Washing

the employees in any of the de

composure sufficiently to go on
with their routine work.
Tney were in an explosive state,
and ai the great state, war and
navy department buildings the
least sign of dispatches or the gath
ering of a crowd of reporters was
sufficient to c^use them to drop
their work and swarm in the cor
ridors clamoring for news.
The excitement was contagious,
and senators and representatives
mixed uto crowds that gathered
around the navy headquarters and
gazed wistfully at the mahogany
doors of the navigation bureau, be
hind which the cipher experts, un
der iock and key, were slowly de

Tbe state department has the
honor of receiving the first news
from the fleet.
It came in the shape of a cable
gram of three words from United
States Consul Wildman, at Hong
Kong, and was as follows :
"Hong-Kong. McCullooh. Wild
.??-?bat is the usual form in which
navt.1 movements are reported by
cable. This dispatch was received
by Third Assistant Secretary Crid
ier, who had been on duty all
night, at 4.40 o'clock this morning.
The naval officials were promptly
notified, and awaited with iutenpe
interest the dispatch which was
expected to surely follow from
About 9.30 o'clock Manager Ma
reen, of the Western Union Tele
graph company, appeared at the
department, bringing with him a
sheet comprising four lines of this
mysterious jargon which makes up
the naval cipher.
He handed this directly to Sec
retary Long, who gazed at it for a
moment and turned it over to
Lieutenant Whil.tue's secretary,
one of the cipher experts of the
navigation bureau, for translation
Then Secretary Long made a
pretense of sitting down at his
desk to transact other business,
but it was plain te be seen that, in
spirit, he had joined the anxious
throng of newspaper men and offi
cials who thronged the reception
room and corridors waiting for the
The naval cipher is one of the
most complex in the world. The
messages come in words of strange
formation, taken from all lau- ;
2;uages. These words are turned
by the tianslating clerks into
groups of figures, and there, in
turn, are resolved into their equW- ?
aleut words in English. All this
In about half an hour Secretary i
Long appeared with a cjpy of the i
translated cipher in h'.s hand. i
There was a great rush toward
him, but the secretary good na
turedly made allowance for the
excitement of the crowd, and smil
ingly read from the corner of the
room into which he had been

Before this a brief summary of
the cablegram, as tar as received,
had been given out by prominent
officers, in which ;;was stated that
Dewey cut the ct.bio himself, but
was unable to tako possession of
the town of Manila for lack of men ; j
also that he had the bay and every
thing else completely at his mercy.

Madrid, May 7.-An official
dispatch from General Augusti,
governor general of the Philip
pines, sentb}7 the way of Labuan,
"The enemy seized Cavite aud
the arsenal, owing to the destruct

established a close blockade. It is
said that, at the request of the
consuls, the enemy will not bom
bard Manila for the present,

enemy's squadron, which is out of

Insert the remains of an old

and ring up the breakfast, Mix

with moderation and keep a wet

against over-excitement." This
method of preparation aud serving
